Kentucky Gov. Beshear announces $386M investment in high-speed web infrastructure

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has announced a $386 million investment in high-speed web infrastructure across the state. The investment is part of his administration’s ambitious plan to expand internet access and bridge the digital divide in Kentucky. The investment will go toward expanding broadband access in the state’s more rural and underserved areas, which currently have limited or no access to the internet. It also includes funds for developing new fiber networks in some communities and expanding existing ones in others. The investment is expected to create jobs and spur economic development in areas that traditionally lack economic opportunity.
